"Me and My Arrow" is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson for his 1970 album The Point!. It was also released as a single in 1971, reaching number 34 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
The song was composed as the theme for Oblio, the pointless boy, and his dog, Arrow. Although the song may be a reference to take a direction and suddenly not knowing where to go, it is in fact about the friendship between Oblio and the dog. It is also a parable for discrimination.
